My interpretation of Turaga Takanuva from the Kingdom alternate universe.
Another inspiration for this MOC was @BenCossy’s Bionicle Inspiration Series episode on Turaga.
I thought of giving the robe a more intricate design like those of Dume and Lhikan, but I ended up going for the simpler look of the Turaga of Mata Nui.
Takanuva’s badge of office, which is part Chronicler’s staff part Kohli stick.
The red and yellow bits are homages to Takua’s color scheme.
I liked the idea of giving Takanuva the glittery Avohki, so I imagined that when he became a Turaga, the mask became shinier while the rest of him wasn’t so much.
“…You’re from … someplace else, I take it?”
The Toa nodded. “Someplace else, it’s true, but not someplace as peaceful. You have done an amazing job.” He smiled. “I’m proud of me.”
“Matoran into Toa, Toa into Turaga, Turaga into legend.”
